Why Choose Metal
Metal roofing is built to last decades longer than shingles, tiles and any other roofing material. Most metal roofs will last sixty or more years, depending on the metal used.
Unlike other roofing material, metal roofing will withstand mildew, rain, mold, strong winds, and rodents. Metal roofing is very easy to maintain, and is also the most fire-resistant. Not to mention, the aluminum material is eco-friendly, meaning recyclable. Nearly all aluminum roofing is made of recyclable material.
Metal roofs require a bigger upfront investment, but will outlast any other roofing material by decades.
Disadvantages of Metal
Metal roofing is generally more difficult and expensive to install. During extreme weather conditions, metal roofing can trap high-levels of moisture and vapors that dissolve to liquid as the night temperature cools. This trapped liquid can lead to rot and weaken the roofing system structure, so proper ventilation is critical.
The most common material used for metal roofs are stainless steel, which is very resistant to dents and rust. There are many color options for your home with stainless steel. You do have to overlay it with special roof coating and paint, otherwise, its left vulnerable to corrosion. There is also aluminum, which is more expensive but resistant to corrosion, energy-efficient, eco-friendly, and very durable.
Metal roofs can be damaged in many ways. We can help whether it be removing rust, replacing heavily corroded or missing fasteners, patching small holes with membrane or replacing one or more roof panels sections.
Roof cleaning is really important for various reasons. Health, home energy-efficiency, and your home’s aesthetics are at the top of the list of reasons. Cleaning your roof routinely (every 24 months) can help you avoid many issues later that are more expensive than cleaning. Algae growth on your roof is the most common concern here in South Florida’s tropical climate. The algae cause roofs of all types to appear very dirty and blackish.
When hiring someone to clean your roof, it is critically important for them to be well experienced professionals or further damage is caused. Ideally, to remove algae, a chemical solution must be administered through a low-pressure sprayer. The chemical solution we use will eliminate all algae, fungus, mildew and all other microscopic spores that lead to toxic growth and damage.
We can clean almost any type of roofing material; asphalt and fiberglass shingles, flat, barrel, cement tiles, slate and more. All of our cleaning solutions are commercially approved and guarantee results.
